June Book Discussion

19th century classics for June: The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne and Three Men in a Boat by Jerome K. Jerome.
The Scarlet Letter, Nathaniel Hawthorne Set in the harsh Puritan community of seventeenth-century Boston, this tale of an adulterous entanglement that results in an illegitimate birth reveals Nathaniel Hawthorne's concerns with the tension between the public and the private selves. Publicly disgraced and ostracized, Hester Prynne draws on her inner strength and certainty of spirit to emerge as the first true heroine of American fiction.
Three Men in a Boat, Jerome K. Jerome: One of the best-loved and most enduring comic novels in all of English literature. It tells the tale of a boating expedition on the Thames, undertaken by three friends, to say nothing of the dog, Montmorency. The vibrancy and style of the Jerome's writing magnifies their adventures to epic proportions, and ensures this story remains as fresh as ever.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
